We sent to Riviera for Lunch and the gaspacho was amazing!!! From the outside terrace to the inside coastal-like the atmosphere is warm and Service is good. Good price/quality balance and nice coffee too!

We went here on a late night right before the long holiday weekend. We both thought this place is off the charts. We loved almost everything about the restaurant. One of the best meals I've had in a restaurant. I ordered the catfish fillet with nuts and it was amazing. My gf got a whole trout and it was off... More

I usually don't like to leave bad reviews but today's experience at Riviera left me feeling somewhat annoyed, especially as it seems to be so highly regarded by others! My fiancée and I were seated at a table after a rather cold greeting. After ten minutes, we still hadn't received menus even though it wasn't particularly busy. After finally taking... More

A superb service (I will repeat myself - unfortunately, not an everyday encounter in Riga restaurants), it really deserves the place in the Top10 of Riga's best restaurants. The food - flawless, the service was great, the atmosphere good for many things and the interior is nice, interesting, classy and cosy at the same time!

Excellent food and wine. Possibility to buy good wines by the glass. Service is very friendly. Do expect quite some waiting time between the dishes. This did not bother us at all. We rather enjoyed the fact that we could eat in a relax tempo. But it might bother other people. Make sure to reserve a table. It is a... More

Very nice place in the center of Riga. Great meal. You can find here everything you can imagine. I recommend you to try home made ice cream, sorbet or chocolate fondant!! Just amazing!!! If you want to have a great dinner on terrace, better make a call and make reservation. You'll enjoy the time you spend in this restaurant.

Let's start with the desserts: Vanilla creme brulee with mango sorbet, hazelnut torte, homemade ice cream. For these alone I would recommend the restaurant. But the seafood risotto and other main fish course dishes were fresh and delicious. We loved getting tea at the Riviera as well. Try green or ginger tea served in lovely china atop a white tablecloth.... More

Trying hard to capture a Mediterranean feel but still obviously Latvian, the menu offered a wide choice. The 'bouillabaisse' soup was a decent effort with a very tasty fish stock. The main fish course dishes of trout and sea bass were also quite fresh and served with a good range of vegetables but lacked any source to add some interest.... More

We booked a table for 8 as we had a business dinner that was very important to me. The restaurant - very full - still managed us in a very nice and highly appreciated manner. The 3 courses were very delicious and although we ordered alacarte no one had to wait and all dishes were perfectly arriving. The service was... More
